This week- I started the Beachbody Health Bet and really trying to stay on track with fitness and eating. Needless to say- I may have attempted to tackle a tiny bit too much at one time- which was pointed out to me as I read through my new personal development book of the week. But I have a plan to work on that.
So I am still aiming for good progress, but I am going to change some of the things that I am trying to do at all times right now. Over the last several years, I have mastered the art of small changes-but one of the biggest changes that I still struggle with is eating a good supper. It seriously does not matter that I have it all planned out, that I am going to eat a healthy dinner- when dinner time comes around- I have not interest in it.
The book I am reading made one suggestion that I am going to try this next week- I am going to make a list of the good things that come from staying on track with my nutrition and keep it in the car. That is where I struggle the most- because in the 30 minutes between work and home- I often times convince myself that I can eat something else. That my once a week ‘eat out’ can turn in to like four times a week-because I really do not want to cook. Or just because I am being lazy that day. So I am hoping that it will be a lot easier to actually keep on track- if I have a reminder with me that helps me nail down the important points of eating well.
All of that being said- I did have progress this week. I am down to 187.6 and I am also down 1.8 inches. Tiny steps. And tiny steps closer to my pre-planned reward.
For those of you AMAZING fitness people who may stumble upon this- do you have any suggestions for what should be on my list? I’ve got some ideas- but I always welcome more!
